if the circumstance is such that fixed properties cannot be used, then why not harness the use of mobile ones?
in terms of camping, and only the best of course.
inflatable bed, large tent which is easy to set up by the beach..facing the direction of the wind for maximum ventilation. and if it gets too hot, a swim in the sea.
does actually sound appealing.

"What an unspeakable luxury it was to slake that thirst with the pure and limpid ice-water of the glacier!" (Mark Twain, A Tramp Abroad)
That's for running 7 bloody km................
good old gatorade.

just came back from morning swim and gym. refreshing. but something's amiss.
sometimes you just wish that certain roads were never crossed and were never ventured.
i'm just cursed with an imagination which goes....wild. and it feels weird just thinking of a certain situations that has happened so long ago, has absolutely no impact on the present or the future. but yet, it happens. and it gets really uncomfortable.
at most times i reckon i'm level-headed; but i am clueless as to why i'm being so silly and...imaginative. bah. i should just go get a lobotomy.
i just want to wipe out all the nasty thoughts breeding in the deep recessess in my mind... but then again...acceptance is they key innit.
i think i'm almost almost there.
perhaps we should just stop talking about those people.

how good it is to be slack.
slaaaaaaaaaack to the max.
breakfast, followed by a lengthy lecture by dearest vacuous csm on the virtues of working hard, which turned out to be a dog and pony show......but that's often not unusual. was then given the appointment to bring some newly posted in personnel on orientatation. brought them around, pointed out some prominent features of the camp, what to look out for in the temperament swings of csm, and what to do if it swings badly in your direction (in every case, run and hide).
since we were tasked to clear the drains today of sand, gunk and other odd looking floaty things, i glady volunteered my men. hahaha! whilst i visited my favourite purlieu, the wonderful world of table tennis.
after about 3 solid, arduous hours of pingponging, lunch beckoned. following that, it was an intense battle of extreme pingpong, termed pingpingpong; since 2 tables were combined, running around, diving for balls was a norm. it was mindboggling, difficult and needless to say, it resembled a terpsichorean frenzy.
soon. it was time to bookout. another day gone. wooohooo.

back online again. woot.
did the same ol' sunday regime and just waiting for another week to come by, and go off. it's good in a way, whiling my time of national service away.
all i look forward to these days is the arrival of j. and it won't be too long from now! just a couple more weeks and everything will be right again.
i can't seem to contain my excitement as each day brings me closer to her.
quite possibly, this has never ever happened before.
